High School Technology Education Courses

  • 7710PA     Aerospace 1

    • Grade Level:  9, 10, 11, 12   
    • Credit:  1    

    Problem solving, group work and independent decision-making skills are a few of the dynamics students will learn and practice in this course. The Columbia Aeronautics and Space Association (CASA) is an aerospace simulation that gives students many opportunities to apply their knowledge and skills in problem-solving.  In CASA, students replicate NASA technologies and experiments in a student directed, hands-on simulation. Students expand their knowledge in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) related projects.  (The CASA Building is located on the Hickman High School campus.)
